A comprehensive plan is a local government's guide to community physical, social, and economic development. Comprehensive plans are not meant to serve as land use regulations in themselves; instead, they provide a rational basis for local land use decisions with a vision for future planning and community decisions. The current Sauk Prairie Comprehensive Plan was adopted on April 11, 2017, amended on October 12, 2021, by the Villages of Sauk City and Prairie du Sac, Town of Prairie du Sac.
The Sauk Prairie Comprehensive Plan is divided into two volumes. Volume 1—Conditions and Issues provides background information, trends, and projections focused on the 3-municipality Sauk Prairie Area. Volume 1 contains no policies or initiatives for future action or consideration. Volume 2—Vision and Directions provides a future vision for the Sauk Prairie Area, and goals, objectives, policies and initiatives for future enhancements to the Area. Other elements of the Comprehensive Plan are the Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan and the Highway 12/PF/Airport Area Plan.

This plan has been prepared to guide the Villages of Sauk City and Prairie du Sac and the Town of Prairie du Sac in acquiring and developing public outdoor parks and recreation facilities. It also serves as a tool to participation in outdoor recreation grant programs through the Department of Natural Resources and to suggest regional connections such as through trails to major public open spaces in the area. This plan is intended as a companion to the Sauk Prairie Comprehensive Plan.
